An engineer pasted a table from Open Office Excel sheet that had colors, the colors got reproduced correctly and he could save the page. However, after some time when he tried pasting another table with colors from the same sheet, it did not work.
My question: Editor does not support Copy/Paste of cells with colors from Excel sheet (Table gets created without cell colors), how come it worked this time?? Attached is the snapshot of the table.
If you attach the excel file to the document, it will render the settings. Pasting the excel table as a new table in Confluence won't work as Confluence supports only simple wiki tables.
You can also accomplish this with raw HTML but that's a poor way of working with Confluence.
There is no "bug" here, possibly some behavior improvements. It's strange but really to be expected. I'm just wondering what improvement could be made. Still not sure what version of excel does this. Any chance you could upload a sanitized version of the xls file or specify the versions/os of your excel clients? I'm morbidly curious which spreadsheet editor uses compatible formatting.
